Texas Scrap Metal Artist - George Tobolowsky

Meet George Tobolowsky a Texas Scrap Metal Artist. Be ready to be amazed by his vision and his works. After a 30 year hiatus, this Texas Metal Artisan jumped back into the junk/scrap yard dumpster diving business and began putting his found objects together to create amazing metal sculptures.

George says that he really enjoys found objects; "I'm able to collect them, I able to combine them into pieces successfully and I'm able to sell them. It's really the relationship between one object and how it integrates and relates to the next found object that brings much of that joy."

Jed Morse the Curator of the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas says; "The thing that really shows George's ability is to know when to stop the ability to recognize when a composition is done. To realize that moment when, if you ad one more thing it throws the entire composition off and so to stop and let it be and leave it."


George's artwork will be showcased at the 
Blue Star Contemporary Art Center and San Antonio Botanical Gardens
December 1, 2011 - January 31, 2012
